Dealing with recruitment agents
« on: February 17, 2009, 08:49:20 pm »
It's a simple relationship once you understand it.

Think of the job market as a Furniture Superstore.

The Recruitment Agent / Consultant is a Furniture Salesperson.

The (Potential) Employer is someone that has walked in off the street with a limited budget looking for a bargain item of furniture. They don't want to look at everything however, 'cos they (cough) "are too busy"

You are a sofa that has already been sat upon by an unknown number of people.

Hope this clears a few popular misconceptions.
